we wanted to visit the Ghetto and of course we strolled thru Cannaregio. we ended having lunch there and enjoyed it along one of the canal. no crowd, fair prices, fresh food, some breeze for an outdoor meal (under sun unmbrella). Worth the visit.

Get off the vaporetto at Guglie walk along the canal and turn right over the bridge.You can walk towards the railway station through a beautiful square and along a delightful shopping street.Less crowded and less noisy and with a different character to the area near St Marks.Restaurants and shops are more reasonably priced.Delightful.

easy to get here, a few minutes walk from Piazzale Roma and the rail station. Bonus is that Venice is full of sign posts showing the way to the station, so never got lost once. Could walk everywhere from here, so no need to use the water buses, just as well as they are incredibly crowded. Restaurants great, not overpriced.... More

I chose to stay in this area as it is a little more quiet and away from the crazy crowds of San Marco & the Rialto Bridge area.

this part of venice is the most convenient island to book your accommodation whilst holidaying in this city. It is conveniently loacted and closest to mainland Italy. The train and bus station is located on this island. Tugging heavy bags over the bridges and steps of Venice is avoided (apart for one bridge that connects the bus terminus toVenice)

Lot of nice little restaurants and cozy canals. It is close to the center of Venice and we got even picked up by a gondol over there. There are many cute churches and little alleys you can walk and explore, as well as courtyards

We stayed here for a few nights. It is steps away from the crowded areas and people just don't seem to flock here. They are on the main paths and it keeps it quiet. From our place, it was a 20 minute walk to St. Mark's Square, about 25 minutes to the train station, and 15 minutes to the water... More

Cannaregio is jammin' now with hip bars and tourists. I am sure there are less discovered portions of Venice, but all our experiences here offered reasonable value, excellent dining, and fabulous ambience. Difficult to have a truly bad meal.

A wonderful and magical part pf Venice. Bars and restaurants along the water. The seating available sitting down on boats docked just next to the bar. and real Italians (not tourists). would say straight out of a movie. For kids go to one of the restaurants in the squares. Upupa in the Ghetto. Free Wifi allows you to prolong the... More

This is an area in the North of the city and is much quieter then the main tourist areas. Our hotel was situated here and we quickly learned that this is the area where the locals come to socialise. Being off the beaten path, bars and restaurants are a bit cheaper and are more authentic. It us also only a... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
